SEATTLE, WA – Representative Adam Smith (D-Wash.), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, today released the following statement after President Biden signed H.R. 7691, the Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act, into law. 
“More help is on the way to the people of Ukraine as their courageous fight against Putin’s war continues. Under President Biden’s leadership and with the support of Congress, the United States has worked alongside allies and partners to deliver significant aid to the Ukrainian military at the most critical moments of this conflict thus far. The latest aid package provides Ukraine with what it needs as this war enters a new stage: additional resources for the Ukrainian military, economic support for the Ukrainian government under President Zelenskyy’s leadership, and humanitarian aid for Ukrainians whose lives and livelihoods have been violently disrupted by Putin’s unlawful aggression. Right now, Russia is losing this conflict. With this aid, President Biden and Congress are equipping President Zelenskyy and the people of Ukraine to continue their brave stand."
